You no doubt have heard of separation anxiety in dogs, and how they can be very destructive when left alone. I have personally experienced it. What you may not know is that cats experience separation anxiety too. Not all cats of course, I have not noticed it in my three cats, but It does happen. The author tells us of the many forms that separation anxiety can take and what to do about it.
The author went into some detail and gave us enough information so that if we are ever faced with this problem of separation anxiety in our cats, we know EXACTLY what to do. Though I have never underwent this problem in my three cats, as i've said, it's nice to know what the heck to do to solve the problem should I ever encounter it.

Do You Think It Is Possible For Cats To Feel Embarrassment? I Knew Cats Had A Wide Range Of Emotions But Never Would HaveThought In a Million Years That Embarrassment Would Be One Of Them. But The Following Article Certainly Has Proved Me Wrong.
“Cats make it very apparent when they are happy, content, angry or frightened. When they start moping around the house but are still eating, drinking and using their litter box normally, that behavior may be a sign they are feeling neglected or even …Petside” http://www.petside.com/article/do-cats-feel-embarrassed
So I Guess The Morale Of This Cat Story Is To Think Twice Before Having Your Cat Groomed In Any Strange Manner. Either That, Or Keep Them Away From Mirrors.
Since adopting my three cats, i’ve come to think of cats as something special in the animal world. They are always doing something unusual or unexpected. But this article about a cat named Jesse James surprised even me. Jesse James seems to be a breed all his own.

Jesse James is not only a name, it is a code of conduct – no matter who you are, you should be interesting, even if you’re a cat.
Jesse James Thomas was born on May 17, 2006, in the Thompson family’s garage in Alton. His mother was a stray cat who the Thompsons fed regularly and who eventually became part of the family.
“His name fits him perfectly; although he gets into trouble often, he makes up for it with his loving gestures,” Shiela Thompson said. “He even tries to reply when we talk to him, and he always knows when we are talking about him.”
SJesse is not your typical “mind your business and I’ll mind mine” cat. He is known for his personality and odd behavior and instantly became a beloved member of the family. When he was first born, Thompson told her daughter Ashley not to touch the …
I never thought much about it because I feed my cats a good grade of Cat Food And They Never Were Finicky About It. But I Do Remember When They Were Kittens I Fed Them Canned Food And As They Grew Into Adults They Wouldn’t Eat The Canned Stuff Anymore But Dug Into The Dry Food. I Do Feed Them A Cat Treat At Night That’s Wet Though. So I guess In Their Own Way My Cats Were A Leetle Finicky. And When My Tannycat Had Surgery A Few years Ago, The Only Thing We Could Get Him To Eat Was Ham. Yep, Ham.

Kibble again? How boring
By: Dr. Patty Khuly | Vetstreet.com

Cats can be finicky about a lot of things. But when a kitty starts to get persnickety about her food, it’s time to pay attention.
Modern house cats evolved as opportunistic hunters, so their gastrointestinal tracts are designed to subsist on multiple, small meals every day to maintain a normal feline metabolism. This is why your veterinarian will recommend feeding your cat at least twice a day. In fact, it’s critical that felines eat at least a little bit more than once every 24 hours.
How do most cat owners comply? By filling a bowl to its brim with kibble every morning.
Ideally, that fat couch potato of a fuzz ball who lives in your house should be stalking, killing and consuming live prey several times a day to keep fit, healthy and metabolically on her toes. Instead, she spends her waking life sauntering over to the bowl and taking a bite every now and again to keep up her plump perfection.
I know you don’t plan to poison your cat or any other pet. But there are poisons lurking that you cat can get their paws on if you’re not extremely careful. The following article will surely open your eyes as it did mine. As usual leave a comment and share with your friends

Dr. Karen Becker: 5 Pet Poisons Hiding in Your Purse, Backpack or Work Bag
According to the folks at Pet Poison Helpline, they talk frequently to terrified pet owners whose dog or cat found an enticing “treat” in a purse or backpack and gobbled it up.
A handbag or similar item lying open with contents exposed can prove an irresistible temptation to a confined, curious and perhaps slightly bored pet.
Top 5 Most Common Purse Items That Poison Pets
1. Human medications. About half the yearly calls to the Pet Poison Helpline are because someone’s pet ingested a medication found in a handbag, book bag, duffel bag, etc. Human pills come in bottles, and the sound of a rattling pill bottle is very similar to the noise some dog toys make.
Both over-the-counter and prescriptions drugs can be a problem. Very common OTC painkillers like Advil, Motrin and Tylenol, and human doses of prescription drugs for depression like Prozac and Effexor, can be toxic to pets.
The pet food recall that just won’t end it seems. Diamond Foods has more problems. Read the article and avoid the brands mentioned like the plague until this thing is over. Be careful-the life of your pet may depend on it.
Pet food recall that won’t end? Cat food now risky
From the recall of a single batch of its “Diamond Naturals” dry dog food on April 6 for possible salmonella contamination, Diamond Pet Foods has expanded the recall on eight separate occasions, endured a week-long inspection of one of its plants by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which criticized its practices, and most recently acknowledged that cats are also at risk.
Yet the Missouri-based maker of Diamond, Premium Edge, Kirkland Signature, and other pet food brands has not called special attention to the expansion of the recall to cat food beyond amending a statement on the company’s Internet recall site: “Diamond Pet Foods has voluntarily recalled some brands of dry dog and cat food that it manufactured in its Gaston, S.C. facility between December 9, 2011 and April 7, 2012 due to potential Salmonella contamination.”
There is no specific information on which brands and batches of cat food may be affected, though you can check a questionable bag’s product code to find out.
Do you know where you can go to find a cat cafe'? You read that right,
A cat cafe'. A place where you can take your cat for tea, or maybe a
sandwhich. I confess I didn't know there was such a thing
as a cat cafe' but the aticle below wised me up. Please read it, you'll
find it entertaining and maybe even thought provoking.
Cat cafés are huge in Japan right now. As the name suggests, these are coffee shops where cat lovers go to sip overpriced lattes and hang out with an adorable smoosh pile of kitties. In the past five years, exactly 79 such cafés have popped up all over Japan. What’s weird is that the café cats aren’t expensive pedigreed felines like Persians or those other ones with the funny bendy ears, they’re just the everyday mixed breeds you might find in the back lot of your local supermarket, cats who, in the immortal words of Brian Setzer, “slink down the alley, looking for a fight/Howling to the moonlight on a hot summer night.” Likewise, in the past few years, there’s been an explosion of photo books and DVDs featuring average-joe cats. If people are so fascinated by what are essentially domesticated alley cats, why don’t they just swoop one up from the legions of strays all over Japan and take them home? I’ll tell you why: because landlords in Japan are dicks.
If you read the article you know you have to take your cat all the way to Japan to enjoy a spot of tea with your cat.
But who knows maybe some enterprising cat lover will open a cat cafe’ in the US. Maybe a franchise in every city.
